Valentine balloons can cause power outages

Pacific Gas and Electric Company encourages customers to hang on to their Valentines Day helium-filled metallic balloons. Unsecured metallic balloons can drift into power lines and cause power outages, fires and injuries to the public.

PG&E reminds its customers to follow these important safety tips:

— Keep metallic balloons away from power lines.

— Keep the balloon tethered at all times. Make sure the vendor has securely attached an anchor to the balloon at the time of purchase.

— Do not release balloons into the sky. They can get caught in overhead lines.

— If a balloon does get caught in a power line, don’t pull the string or climb a utility pole to recover it. Leave it alone and call PG&E at 1-800-743-5000.
